Projects On The Side

You may think I've forgotten or abandoned my knitting. But I'm still working on my sweater wrap. I have to knit until the length measures 64 inches and I'm only halfway there.

I'm headed to Michael's today (after I exercise) to buy yarn for a baby blanket. I have a baby shower to attend next weekend. Yes, I'm starting this project with only 6 days to finish it. I will have to put the sweater wrap on the back burner and really focus on the blanket. I've picked a fairly easy pattern (Baby Afghan for Beginners) so I'm confident that I can complete it. The mother-to-be is also registered somewhere so I'll probably get something as a backup. You know the old saying about the best laid plans....


I'm nearing the end of my second 30-day challenge and I've been losing weight. The scale says 5 pounds but the big deal is that my clothes are fitting better! When I start my next 30 days, I'm undecided if I should move up to high intensity or re-do the medium intensity.

I gained so much weight in the last year that, even with this progress, I still have a long way to get to a truly healthy weight. I'm not delusional; I have no desire to be a size 0 or 2 because that is just not possible for me. However, I would like to ultimately lose at least 40 pounds. I'm averaging a pound a week so by the end of the year I should be close to my goal.
